9780099967408: Musical Elaborations

This study analyzes music, moving from the personal response of the listener to the cultural and public ramifications of its performance and historical setting. Covering subjects as diverse as the eccentric genius, Glenn Gould, the influence on Wagner's music and his politics, and the formative influence that music had on Proust in "Remembrance of Things Past". The essays contained in this book originated as a series of lectures in cultural theory.

Review:

"Not since Virgil Thomson have we had a music critic with as wide ranging a view as Edward Said. He informs us not only of a performer's veracity, but of the social climate that flavors it." -- "Studs Terkel"
